No. More effective treatment is warm soaks 3-4 times per day. If this does not work in a few weeks, then it will need to be surgically treated. There is no ointment that has any significant effect on a chalazion.
Yes it can be. You should not use this drug without the supervision of your ophthalmologist long term.
Part of treatment. Use of tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) is a combination of antibiotic and steroid which helps treat infection portion of sty and manage inflammation. This plus adequate drainage is often effective. You should see a local opthalmologist to manage. Prolonged use of tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) is not recommended due to risk of fungal infections, etc in the eye.
Not very. A chalazion is the cystic product of a stye which the body has surrounded with a wall. Tobrex (tobramycin) will not penetrate. You can try heat but if the lesion is obvious, large or bothersome, see your ophthalmologist for correction.
Minimal effect. Tobradex, (tobramycin and dexamethasone) a fine combination product of tobramycin and Dexamethasone for topical use on the eye, will not penetrate into a formed chalazion. This is a cystic wall around the products of inflammation from a previous stye. Heat application in a diligent manner may get rid of the chalazion but some have to be surgically removed in a minor office procedure.
Tobradex/ chalazions. Chalazions while not an inflection, are an inflammation, which the Dexamethasone in tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) is a help. The tobramycin in tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone), prevents secondary infection in the area of the chalazion concern is prolonged use, may cause a temprary elevation of the eye pressure (glaucoma) in some individuals....Use as directed.
Can you tell me about good experience in treating a chalazion with tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone)?
Possibly useful. I commonly use tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) and find it is a useful part of the treatment. The gold standard for treatment though is warm compresses to the chalazion 15 minutes per day 4 times per day. Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) can help, but it is best in combination with warm compresses. Usually the combination is 75% successful.
Need doctor's help! Can I use tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) ointment to treat a chalazion?
Yes. Short term only? Also use warm compresses ; see your doc if fails to respond within 1-2 weeks. It require i;d.
I have chalazion in my both eyes. Doctor prescribed Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) with fucithalmic drops. Should I take both at same time? Don't they have same effect?
Useless treatment. These antibiotics will not penetrate a chalazion. They are not worth the expense or time to treat this condition. Try using lots of heat - a washcloth under very warm (but not hot) water held over the chalazion for 4-5 minutes at least 5 times per day. If persistent more than one week of this treatment, then see your ophthalmologist.
